On June 27th, LA Metro implemented Phase 2 of the NextGen Bus Plan, a comprehensive redesign of Metro’s entire bus network. 80 bus lines (roughly half the system’s lines) saw an increase in trips every day of the week. Metro also implemented two new Metro Micro zones, providing flexible travel options for riders not near a fixed-route service. Metro is also working closely with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation to implement new bus-only lanes on busy corridors to allow for faster bus travel, and this phase of the project features a new bus lane on Alvarado Street. The next and final phase of plan implementation is scheduled for December 2021.
